It's the WootFury derby! Let the disappointments begin!

(j/k, and I admit to having a fair share of pop-culture shirts too. Here's hoping for some real creative mashups.)

I'm guessing the answer to this question is no - but with the new derby rules I find myself unsure enough to ask. If I have a design that has been up on a site like RedBubble, could I submit it to a derby if it no one has ever bought one and I take it down before the derby begins? I feel like that would have been a clear no-no in the past, but thought I'd clarify for the present. Thanks!

Here's a sneak peek at mine. You're a Good Turtle, Leonardo.
I may remove the blobby background shape...

We would prefer not to have it submitted to the derby if it has been for sale elsewhere. From our point of view it's still tricky if it was for sale but hasn't sold anything because we have no way to confirm. I'm sure things like this have gotten through in the past as we're not omnipresent, but your best bet is to try to avoid it as you could risk rejection if we aren't comfortable running it.

Oooo boy. This derby has proven to come up with some of the best and worst shirts in the past. Here's to hoping it's a good one.

Hmm, flirting with chance here - reckon either of these will get through?

Yeah, I didn't work on anything this week when I had the time... oops. Here's a VERY MESSY AUGH sketch for my first idea, 'Sailor That's No Moon'. In the name of the Dark Side, she will punish you.

Thanks! I just updated the file (if you look above). I resized it on the wrong settings, it looks better now.

OK, I’ve never posted here before asking for opinions… not because I wouldn’t value them, but because I usually work so slowly that I don’t have anything to share while the conversation is getting attention. But I didn’t do anything for the last derby to focus more on this one.

So here’s what I’ve got. And I can’t decide between the version that includes eyes and the one that doesn’t. Part of me thinks the style looks simpler and cleaner without it, and they don’t add much information, but part of me thinks it looks more complete with them.

It's titled "That CAN'T Happen HERE!"






I welcome any other comments, though at this point I’m not sure how much I’d have time to change. Thanks!

Might as well have a signature now since I have something to put into it.

Is this mashed-up enough?

I don't have any cats or Tardes (is that the plural?), but I was wondering what would happen if Quentin Tarantino directed any of those Scholastic Rock shorts...

Dammit Obamacare! I knew there were going to be "death panels."

LOVE the first one, but then I can never get enough Who shirts. Not so much a fan of the second one if only because I've never been much of a fan of Adventure Time, so... I'm probably not a great source of unbiased opinion XD

I'm curious if people will get my references by just looking (without a boost from the title). Still WIP and only one element of the whole:

The linework is solid, but without other elements, all I've got is Popeye. But still, it's a great start.

Haha, nice guess, but I don't even have a PS3 or 4!
See, this is why it's so useful to ask, because I was convinced it was obvious.
I won't say yet, but it's also a sailor, and the can of onions and pouch around his neck are the main clues.
Anyway, thanks for the input so far, guys!

Confession: I hate Sailor Moon. That said, I can't wait to see how this turns out! Is the cat darth vader? Because I kinda imagine Tuxedo Mask in that role.

I was thinking of making a parody of the Chic-Fi-La slogan Eat more Chicken. Can I use that or should I come up with something close but not exact?
